The first thing we do is to offer your child a free assessment or a trial lesson. This is done in a very nurturing way, it’s not a pressurised test. During this assessment we’re not only looking at a child’s educational profile, which will identify their strengths and weaknesses.

  • Before coming here, I was completely hopeless when it comes to GCSEs and couldn’t get any more than a minimum of 4. Now, it’s a completely different story thanks to the guys at VAKS. Unlike in a regular classroom where you try to adapt to a teachers teaching style, at VAKS they give you a tailored course to suit your needs and it works 10 times better than at school.

    GCSE 2018 student - Steven

  • VAKS has helped me improve how I structure my writing and how I can get my thoughts onto paper. With Maths, it helped me learn more complex topics which came up in my GCSE that I would not have been able to master on my own. Overall VAKS has helped me a lot when preparing for my exams and it has made them a lot easier.

    GCSE 2018 student - Nico

  • VAKS has really helps me to know how to get the marks in an exam situation. Not only this, but my general understanding of science has been improved so much. I love learning here.

My son attended Vaks and loved it! I knew we had the right place, when my son attended the initial assessment and wanted to return. Vaks did an amazing job at building his confidence in his phonics during Year 2. The team are very encouraging and nurturing too. Firm but friendly and it was a pleasure to work alongside them to assist with my sons English. Thank you.

Honestly the best tuition out there, they got me from a Predicted D to an A in a matter of months for my English GCSE- I was only expecting to leave with a C grade. The impact of this was long lasting as it helped me with my A levels and I am now going off to university. They are extremely friendly and understanding and suggest a number of resources which is just extra help to improve. They are the best tuition group out there, and I have unfortunately been through a fair few before reaching VAKS which do not even compare the the quality VAKS tuition can offer. Moreover, they are all extremely encouraging and believe that every pupil can succeed; even when they doubt themselves (which I certainly did) and go above and beyond in order to help every individual student achieve what they require, if not better. Worth every penny!
